NFC East Charts and Opinions Week8- Eagles Edition

 

Dominating win ........Celebration is over time to focus for the next game.

As many of you I'm sure have their eyes set on taking this division I want to find out from you all what's it going to take to clinch a playoff spot?

12 or 11 Wins? Does 10 wins including sweeping the Cowboys cut it? How important is getting a split against the Giants?

Who's left to play?

In my opinion:

Cards =Must Win

Hawks =Must Win

Phins =Must Win

Skins =Must Win

Bears =Must Win

Jints   =Must win

Boys  =Must win

Jets  =Either way

Pats  =Either way

The above gives them 10-6 - Sounds like a bunch  of must wins but not exactly a long list of scary teams either.

Please don't mistake this post for advocating the Eagles should shoot for 10 wins, ofcourse you all want them to win every single game, I'm only trying to forecast whats the min that gets them to the playoffs.

Week 10 we can discuss what wins the division.

The order of the NFC East teams represent last years end of season standings because the "separate 2 games" are based on the standings of last year.
It should also remind all of you what the Eagles accomplished last year and what they need to protect; being #1 in the division!.

Once again the chart above should reflect what Willgfass' post explained. The NFL doesn't use a lottery or names out of a hat system to figure out the schedule - instead there's a systematic process that dictates what the 8 common games will be for each division in football. This year the NFC East is going against the NFC West and AFC East.

There is a rhyme and reason why the Eagles faced the Falcons and soon the Bears. The 2 separate games for the NFC East is against the NFC North and NFC South. The Eagles finished 1st place therefore face the teams that finished 1st.

The Division chart works differently then the 2 previous charts. I personally think its a thing of beauty because it reminds me of the multiplication "cheat" chart that was behind my notebook in elementary school. Click for image.

Ah but I digress, so anyway the previous 2 charts above had WON or LOST reflected for the teams on the column header but we can't do that here.  This is because our  division is also represented in the rows. Instead the cells are color coded to represent which team won the game.  The teams on the column header represent the Home team and the teams on the left represent the visiting team. So what you end up with is 3 games for each team away and 3 games for each team at home. Orange box represents the win/loss for the away team and yellow box represents the win/loss for the home team - add them up and you have the division totals for each team. If you're still confused try clicking on the link above that says image.
